New Paper and Silk Lamination Project

I started a new project today; this time, it’s poppies, a shape well known to me from my previous quilt. You can’t see it too well here, I’ll post a better photo soon; this is the first of 6 poppies:

I ripped up color photocopies of poppy photos I’d taken in my backyard the last few years; I’m making a collage of the photocopy pieces, and will transfer the completed image to silk organza.  Here are a few more of today’s poppies:

After looking at my work, I’ve decided the shape on the left is going to have to go; I think it’s best if the poppies kind of “match” and the one on the left has blue in the “wrong” places. For some reason, the old Sesame Street song “One of These Things Is Not Like the Other” came to mind as I tried to figure out what was bugging me.

I’ll post better photos tomorrow or the next day, my work day permitting.

    • Thanks. I hope to finish this piece, and do another collage of saguaros, and then along with the prickly pear piece I did last month, have a total of 3; they’ll all be the same size, and I think I’ll quilt them and then mount them on stretcher bars so they kind of look like canvas paintings. We’ll see. 🙂
